Eagan Tilghman from Making It joins Tori Cameron and guest host Mandi Figlioli on Season 3 Episode 4 of STEAM Up the Classroom. They chat about student voice, the culture of schools, and the importance of including STEAM into all subjects. Eagan’s interview is raw and real and he tells Tori and Mandi of the difficulties he faced as a student who enjoyed “making” at a small town high school that focused on sports. He expresses his thoughts on how schools can build more art, STEAM, and kindness into their cultural climates. They chat doodling, sketchnoting, building, and allowing students to “learn in their own way.” Eagan also shares about his experience on season 2 of Making It, a terrific competition show that highlights 9 incredible makers from across the United States. We chat about the different makers, what it’s like to be on the show, and our hopes for the future of the show. We even shout out to Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Little Bits!
Making It airs on NBC and can also be streamed on Hulu.
